Michele’ le is in her own lane nowadays as she gears up for season 3 of “R&B Divas L.A.,” which returns tonight on TV One.
Musically, the singer is back on the scene with new dance music featuring “100% Pure Love” singer Crystal Waters. Chatting with cnikky.com at the 2015 NAACP Image Awards, Michel’le weighs in on Suge Knight’s recent arrest for murder and attempted murder as well as her part in the much-anticipated NWA biopic and the possible attempted suicide of Bobbi Kristina Brown.
Brown’s situation strikes a personal nerve for Michel’le, in light of her speaking about her own suicide attempt. According to the singer, the deep depression affiliated with suicide is something that isn’t easy to overcome.
The following are highlights from Michel’le’s interview:
How do you feel about what’s going on with Suge Knight?
“I don’t feel anything! I’m not his girlfriend! Just to clear that up! Let me clear that up girl! That’s 10 years gone bye bye! I know, but you know what? It’s really unfortunate and ironic because he’s lived his whole life of people just saying he was this bad guy, and that one split second, he changed a lot of lives. You know, he really did. And the bad thing about it for me, is that, my daughter Bailey, she gets to go visit him. But, the Carter’s don’t get to go visit their child. so, it touched all of our families, changed our lives forever.”
What is your role in the NWA biopic, Is someone playing you?
“I’ve been told so many different stories. I’ve been told I’m in there a little bit, then I was told I’m not in there. “
Did you shoot any scenes in the film?
“No! Of course they didn’t use the real people because we would tell the truth! You can’t be having the truth in no movies! Now you know that! So, I don’t really know if my character made it. Because it’s really Cube’s version of the story.”
You’ve gone through a similar depression as Bobbi Kristina, how do you come through that?
“It’s a process, cause it just doesn’t go away like people think it does. It just doesn’t come upon you one day and you go, Oh! It’s something that you work at. My mother and my grandmother died 5 years ago and I’m still…matter of fact I just started mourning. You know what I mean? Because you try to be strong. I try to be strong for my daughter. And then one day you just have to face it. It is what it is.”
